Apple Watch Diary – Getting to know you

iPhone was hotly-rumored before 2007; iPad a frequent topic of debate prior to 2010; but it’s hard to argue that Apple Watch, reaching consumers’ wrists today, is the most controversial of Apple’s recent line-up.

BlackBerry says Net Neutrality means they should get Apple apps

It's not that the CEO of BlackBerry, John Chen, doesn't know what Net Neutrality means. It's just that he - and the rest of the company - want it to mean something that also happens to be extremely beneficial to them.

Xiaomi tried to clone iMessage but screwed up badly

On the face of it, Xiaomi's plan must've seemed a good idea: take a leaf from Apple's playbook and offer free messaging when users turned on its Android phones.
